Oh that is fun .. sort of like a teen agers back pack with all its doo-hickies dangling .. or my silly keyring collection ..

Monique said...

How inventive is that? Great collection.

SandyCarlson said...

You find the best stuff, David. All life is art. I remember that when I come to your site. So what's he do with those things?

Julie at Virtual Voyage said...

Yep, it jest might catch on....

Sniz said...

I've never seen these before. How cool.

THat's a great collection. It certainly makes for a distinctive hat. Happy WW

MamaGeek said...

Love the color combinations and of course the post title - PERFECT with a dash of brilliance!

Josie said...

I want one of those hats. Where can I get one? :-)

lynn said...

Lovely colours. As it loaded, i first thought it was a necklace around someone's neck!

Lee said...

Those tags are cute! I can see how someone might want to collect them. :) I used to live just two houses down from the local John Deer owner. We played with his daughters all the time.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

I love it. What a unique way to dress up your hat band. Have a great WW. :)

Am I having a déjà vu moment here? Both the image and the word "stockman" triggered it.

Brian in Oxford said...

He sort of reminds me of the guy at the party during the movie "Say Anything" who's responsible for holding the car keys until the attendees are sober enough to drive home....

Sandi McBride said...

Okay, what are they, hotel room keys? Tractor keys? strong box keys? keys to laughter? All of the above and then some?

Too funny David

CrazyCath said...

Who needs words with pictures like that? Really good label too.

Shrinky said...

Hey now, you wouldn't be cheating by any chance? I have a sneaking suspicion I may have seen that hat somewhere else before. Hmmmn..

Kaycie said...

David, if you'd like to visit my blog, send me an e-mail to the address on my profile. I didn't realize I hadn't sent you an invitation until today.

Well caught Sir David.

Just a few miles from Grantham is the home of Deere Tractor base.

Come and join us on a Steam Train Journey.

aims said...

I too echo everyone's question.

What are those things on the hatband?

Will you give us a clue David?

Celebration of Life said...

They are ear tags for stock, either cattle or sheep.

San said...

David, I must say I like your photo of the hat much more than the hat itself. You elevate it into art.

Sharon said...

What an interesting collection of tags! I've never seen anyone do that to his hat. You'd think that where I live I'd have seen something like that before.

That was a great (and funny) catch.

napaboaniya said...

Tags for cow ears right?!? They sure are colorful...

dKaye.com said...

that's a lot of tags!

happy ww. :)

ValleyGirl said...

Haha, that's awesome! Looks like something you'd see around my neck of the woods....

Lori said...

LMAO...thats your hat, isnt it??? too funny. Happy WW.

Gawdess said...

never seen anything like it before!

Janice Thomson said...

It must be your hat LOL

Mima said...

Not just a great photo, but such an interesting one too - real case of photojournalism! I didn't realise what they were until I read the comments, but someone sure has managed to get a great collection together!

Crystal Jigsaw said...

Love it! We are big John Deere fans here having sheds full of machinery. Great pictures, David.

the mother of this lot said...

I want one!

Autumn said...

Great shots David. Interesting that they keep them on their hat. Thinking of how they tag the livestock that wouldn't seem to be the easiest place to grab one off.

Mushy said...

You won't believe what I thought those were at fist glance...something that would fit over a pole...you know, slide down the pole for some reason. Yeah, stupid I know, but without all the perspective, it's strange what the eye sees and what use the mind can create for it!

Misty Dawn said...

Love it! How creative.

Anna said...

Very colorful. I imagine this is better than shoving everything into his pockets.
